In memory of

 

Mohammed Shah Khan’s wife, Turfikey, and his mother

died between 5-6 AM on October 11, 2001

in the small farming village of Karam, 35 kms west of Jalalabad. Mohammed Shah Khan, 22, said he and six family members were sleeping when the U.S bombs struck. His mother and wife were killed instantaneously. All he has left is his 3-month-old daughter.  Mohammad suffered shrapnel wounds in his neck and legs. The village was littered with shredded clothing and bones of livestock. Months later, Mohammed Khan said, “our houses were bombed; our cattle were killed. Innocent women and children died….Someone should come and dry our tears.”
